Paper Abstract

The radiant transmittance of a tilted plano surface in a convergent conical beam of varying intensity depends upon the "local" angle of incidence and the projection of the plane-polarized flux onto the plane of incidence. For the surface at Brewster's angle and modest cone angles, the insertion loss for a plane-polarized beam can be as large as 10%, negating any advantage of the Brewster's angle window. Details of the calculations will be given and examples will be shown.
